Desert highway in morocco



In october 2013 we´re organizing another sidecar ride to morocco. If anybody is interested, don´t hesitate to contact me. There is also one or two rigs for rent, if you decide to ride with us.

PS: Paved roads all the way, except 300 meters. No problem for all kind of sidecars. We don´t ride this "desert highway" (only if you want).

Nice pics TD, thank you for sharing with us. Your "leading legs" on the V-Strom have found a permanent home, I hope. I have watched them travel over the years to end up in Oz. I have the SteerRite on my DL hack, love it.

Have you done a gear change on your outfit? Curious what you may have done and how you like it.

Hiya HP, yep, those LL are great! I owe Alan for thinking of me with those.

I've been experimenting with gearing a lot lately, what an expensive exercise that is!

Currently I'm running 17/45 and it seems to run very comfortably.

How's your Strom running these days?

Dave.

My Strom is rockin these day.......Weather has been awesome around here so gettin lots of riding in. I had my clutch basket done by Realshelby in January and the difference is unreal. I hope it holds up through the abuse.

I'm at 17/46 as of now. Started with a 16/45 and liked that even better but on a trip last summer the chain went to hell and I had to change out at a dealership on the road, ended up with the 17/46 which wasn't off my much and I find it acceptable. I'm wearing out rear car tires way too fast and am looking at some other options for ct's before my next trip. Its always something!

Plenty of horns.......

This is the little lad going for a drive round the garden.....



To be honest, it's been worth putting the sidecar on alone for the joy it brings him.
